Granholm wants us Michigan residents to spend money to get into snow sports? And just where in the fark are we supposed to get the money to pay for that, since we're still the worst in unemployment and pay in the continental U.S.? How about trying to give some breaks to get some businesses back into the state first. Get some jobs, we make some money, then we'll go out and play. I cannot wait until she is out of office.

Only July? Well, at least Detroit loves her, she takes all of our money and throws it at that festering cesspool. That's worked well so far hasn't it?

Oh, Jenny! Life is just that simple for you, isnt it?
It must be nice.
So, what exactly is the importance of winter recreational activities?

Donuts in the work parking lot at 7am afte a fresh snow is at the top of my list.

/seems important

Snowmobiling and skiing are great ways for folks to enjoy themselves and spend lots of money on registration fees and skiing passes, as well as the money spent at gas stations, hotels, resturants, liquor stores and hospitals.

Meanwhile, drunken sledding is (relatively) cheap, involves drinking, and is lots of fun.

Well, to be fair, my SUV gets terrible gas mileage, so I like to think I'm doing me part by whipping brodies in the snow.

This isn't really anything new. Similar programs have been run in Michigan for many years. This year just seems to have a bit more PR.

The hard part about that one is trying to determine if the headache is from the booze or the tree you bounced off of on the 10th pass down the hill.

Yeah, in all seriousness, the winter is always the slow time for most buisness and as a result, state tax reciepts. If you can get more folks to go play in the snow, the more money they spend and the wheel of the economy turns another notch.

As a sidenote, I see quite a few Minnesota and Michigan folks come out west to go snowmobiling in the steep and deep. These folks are pretty intense and generally love the sport. Adding up the costs for all the equipment, clothing, gas, meals and lodging makes me wonder where they get all the money. Not cheap to say the least.

Granholm and the rest of Michigans politicians need to be removed. So many failures from that place.

They offer paycuts to help the govt. budget, but not until next year when THEY are out of office. Yay! go go granholm!

Invoke a smoking ban, and lose tax revenue but hey let's keep it up for the casino's because apparently it's ok to have 2nd hand smoke while you gamble but not while you drink.

Instead of oh I don't know. Making a smoking license for businesses much like a liquor license with half the number of licenses compared to liquor so you have at least a few bars that are smoke free, and using THAT revenue to cover the huge gapping cespool of a hole she created in the education funding.

Paying 320k dollars for a 2 mile fence to save a species of turtle from getting run over. Sure the turtle was endangerd and I agree it needed to be saved. but 300k+ dollars for a fence? Seriously? talk about inflation.

Granmole is an epic failure.

Very well could be. However, most of them are avid gearheads and normally those two don't run together very well.

In Michigan they do though. Think "Icy Hot Stuntaz", we got a lot of them like that on the northwest side of MI.

Isn't that the truth. It is amazing how much money they throw at their sleds and gear.

After skiing in CO & UT it is almost painful to ski in Michigan. With the exception of "Mt" Brighton. That is painful regardless.

Yeah, new 800cc base models for the Big 4 (Polaris, Artic Cat, Skidoo and Yamaha) all go for 10K-12K and most of these folks tack on another 4 or 5K in aftermarket parts.

Subby anticipating what she will declare in July

Probably that Snow Sports Month wasn't a stupid idea.


Most of the problems attributed to Granholm aren't her fault, but she's so terrible at mobilizing public support for any kind of progress that I have very little sympathy for her. There might be a handful of competent politicians in Michigan, but they're very, very quiet, whoever they are.

Detroit is a freewheeling bizarro disaster zone. Seriously, the Detroit portrayed in Robocop is the Emerald City by comparison. Detroit politics are more otherworldly than those crazy foreign governments we love to make fun of. Detroit needs to be shut down, divided into far smaller municipalities, and possibly sold to Canada or anyone else who'll take it.

The moral of the story is that if your state lives off of any particular industry, take that success and start planning and diversifying for a rainy day. Start now. Start yesterday. When the crunch comes, it'll take your governors and legislatures about thirty years to respond significantly, and you won't enjoy it.

Previous governors were not any better. Really though we haven't had any good "options" in years. all polticians seem to be crooks and liars, but only some of them get caught (cough kilpatrick cough) an when they DO get caught, they get re-elected...seriously..wtf was detroit thinking? Detroit got what they deserved, and I personally think they have more coming to them.
